About the Course
There has been a rise in delinquent acts committed by girls and increased gang activity including girls. Today, girls account for 30% of all juvenile arrests and 18% of the arrest for violent crime (Office of Juvenile Justice). This workshop takes an exploratory view into the world of violent girls and seeks to uncover the root causes of female delinquency and violence such as victimization, social learning, and family/community strain. We will also explore strategies to help empower girls and build the protective factors necessary to overcome violence as a way of life.
